Coming into Week 4 with a 26-21 (.553) record, I'm awfully embarrassed about last week's performance, even though I knew the games were tough to begin with. I'm making the decision to not switch any of my picks this week and we'll see how it goes.
Oakland +9 @ Houston - Houston has yet to be able to stop the run and Oakland has a great rushing attack. The Raiders have also not given me much reason to choose them, but they did cover the +10 against San Diego earlier in the season and I like the points here.
Jacksonville +3 v. Tennessee - Tennessee is struggling to get anything going and Jacksonville has my boy MJD. I'll continue to pick the Jaguars until I can't take any more let downs.
New England -2 v. Baltimore - I went against New England last week and it hurt because I wanted them to win the game and have the Falcons cover the spread at the same time. Making it easier on my high blood pressure and heart attack chances, I'm going with the Patriots. Homer.
Cincinnati -6 @ Cleveland - Cleveland can't score, don't have Jamaal Lewis and Derrick Anderson is going to get his first start of the season.
NY Giants -9 @ Kansas City - The Giants are still an upper echelon team and the Chiefs are in shambles.
Detroit +10 @ Chicago - Detroit is going to be on a high from winning their first game last week and with 10 points in their favor, I like the odds.
Washington -7 v. Tampa Bay - Washington can come out one of two ways. They can tank it after losing to the Lions or come out with a chip on their shoulder. Also, Josh Johnson is making his first NFL start for the Bucs.
Indianapolis -10 v. Seattle - The Colts seem to be unstoppable since their game against Miami and Seattle, although they've come back to bite me in the butt a few times, I don't see this one even being close with the Seahawks defense.
New York Jets +7 @ New Orleans - The two undefeated teams should put on a great show. I almost switched up on this, but I'm going to stay true to my words and stick with the J-E-T-S.
Buffalo E @ Miami - Miami is 0-4 and Pennington is out for the season. A team in transition with no spread gives me a good chance.
St. Louis +9.5 @ San Francisco - Frank Gore is out this week and St. Louis has been begging for me to pick them, let's see how it goes.
Denver +3 v. Dallas - Dallas' running game is down to Tashard Choice. Although he's a good back, Denver's defense has been great and I think the Broncos can steal this game at home.
Pittsburgh -6 v. San Diego - I don't know LT's status for the game, but I have to keep plugging away with the Steelers until I can't push them any harder.
Minnesota -3.5 v. Green Bay - I've been waiting for this one all season and couldn't go against Brett Favre if I wanted to in this one. Revenge is spelled F-A-V-R-E.
